Fauchon has always been synonymous to contemporary luxury food. You know you tasted luxury if you start shopping at Fauchon for dinner.
“For more than a century, Fauchon served the regal, the rich, and the famous. The Paris-based purveyor of luxury goods sold tea to royalty, pastry to politicians, and caviar to movie stars. When the Duke and Duchess of Windsor decamped in Paris, they made regular forays to Fauchon’s main Place de la Madeleine emporium. When French radicals in 1968 wanted to strike at a symbol of decadence, they stormed Fauchon and distributed foie gras to the poor,” writes Matt Miller in the Daily Deal.- Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fauchon)
Coming from Los Angeles I never heard of it before until one day we were walking along Place de la Madeleine emporium in Paris and there I had my first Fauchon visit. From the outside I thought it was a cosmetic store. I thought their display was some sort of advertising caviar as a beauty regime. I don’t know. Just saying! 🙂
That was just my first impression without knowing what Fauchon really was.
So going inside was a tremendous display of luxury food. The store looks half gourmet restaurant, half grocery but not your ordinary gourmet restaurant or grocery. Everything was well put together, looks very fine and expensive.
I mean, where else can you find a whole duck foie gras with 15% truffle for 480 Euro/Kilo in a regular supermarket here in LA? Nada.
And it goes on and on and on. You just want to taste everything in that store. It’s decadent and I love the sight of their “macarons”!
Now click each photo below to see what else is inside! I tried my best to take as much as photo as I can inside the store but I felt kinda awkward taking pictures of their expensive salmon as well. Either way, I love visiting Fauchon!
